With technology the way it is these days, it seems that there are fewer and fewer reasons to send mail—anything put in a mailbox would be old news by the time it reached its recipient. My very dear friend just moved to Boston, and since we'll be communicating via phone or Internet a few times a week, I decided to send her something other than a letter.
I stacked some mini origami paper, folded it, and cut a bunch of little hearts.
Then I punched two holes in each heart with a micro-punch, and strung it on crochet thread to make a garland.
I tucked it in an envelope—now all it needs is an address and a stamp. I think this little heart garland will find a good home in Holly's new apartment, and remind her that she is missed in New York!
What other little paper surprises will fit in an envelope?
